During the episode she will need to use her time travelling powers extensively
to travel back into the past to get out of her difficult position. Many of the
previous events are revisited or retold in an entirely different context.
Aside from familiar locations, a part of this episode is set in San Francisco

mechanics return, including an extensive stealth section. Unlike the previous
episode the diary is less important, but used in a different way along with
the texting system.
